3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from batch #219-220 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. Deep dark brown color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of cloves, malt and grain. Medium to full body with flavors of sweet spices, yams and malt. The finish is sweet with a spice and grainy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great beer. Nose of cinnamon and vanilla. Taste is subtle cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Almost no coconut as described on the bottle. Mouthfeel is great for a porter. Overall a really well done beer for what they were going for.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a thin ring of khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, brown sugar and loads of baking spices. Taste is mostly baking spices with dark chocolate and something a little sweet. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation. And a super long finish. Overall, awesome. Another pipeworks winner.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells totally foul - cinnamon, coconut, funky toffee something. This is hard to continue to smell. Yucko. Cinnamon and chewy goop, coconut, licorice, light sour, something green, total mistake having this.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep murky brown, near opaque with a rocky fading head. The aroma has moderate vapours of cinnamon, clove and vanilla bean along with some toasted bread. Smell like a liquid dinner. Hint of smoke and earthiness as well on the nose. The taste is more of the same with pronounced spices and root to earth backbone.

Bottle - Chocolate, roasted malts, clove and other spices. Jet black with a thin brown head. Sweet molasses, clove and cinnamon. A bit too spicy and unbalanced.
